5.0 out of 5 stars Happy so far, 10 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Speakers very easy to fit. Once you have your door panel off, it's literally a case of unplugging cables and screwing the new speaker into place then plugging cables back in. Sound is great but I'm waiting on a new stereo to get a better idea of the capability. You can tell by feel that they are vastly superior to the stock fitted speakers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not JML, 6 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item sent was not specifically the JML Iron Gym, but a very similar product named Door Gym. Frankly, at this price, i'm not bothered over branding issues, but it is a touch misleading.

The product seems strong enough a the moment (will update if it fails). I don't feel unsafe using it at all, feels very secure. It comes with small securing clip which I don't think is meant to support any weight but to make sure the top bar doesn't slip around when you aren't using it.

Using this as a prop for push ups is also very good. It adds an extra six inches or so height to your push up as you drop your weight through the bars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, terrible case design, 4 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Community - Season 1-4 [DVD] (DVD)
This series is hilarious. The humour reminds me of early series scrubs. Many of the stories are original and not copied and pasted from other sitcoms as is often the case with comedy. There are a lot of themed episodes such as the stop-motion Christmas episode, the 8-bit game themed episode, musicals and paint-ball episodes.

There are plenty of extras. Making ofs, deleted scenes, outtakes and commentaries if you like that sort of thing.

I knocked a star off for the case design. The cases only have one disc holder. This means that four discs are sat on top of each other which will eventually leave them all scratched. Also if you want disc four you have to fumble around pulling disc one through three out first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth upgrading from DVD, 29 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the Child's Play films and I own them all on DVD. Being a cult film I wondered whether Chucky would get the wonderful high definition rendering he deserved. He really does. These films look fantastic in Hi-Def and what I love about chucky is that he was a real doll, not some cheap special effect, so he looks even better in Hi-Def. The box is also very well designed with some great artwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not big results but a well made product, 19 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Though I didn't get the results I expected, i can't mark down a product that never promised a huge return.

The product itself is well built and very easy to install. You unscrew your current front cover, place the new plate over the hole put the old plate back on and use the new screws to fasten it.

After a few minutes I had a relatively small increase. Something like 2.6Mb up to 3.4Mb. Note here were are talking in Megabits(Mb), not MegaBytes(MB). A bit is an eigth of a byte (by eight). My 0.8Mb increase then comes to a real world increase of 100kilobytes per second. Scarcely worth the money.

Maybe combining this item with a better service provider will have the desired increase but for now I haven't had much luck.

So, though my results weren't great, this product didn't promise big change so I will rate it as it is. An easy to install, well made wall plug.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better then B, 5 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The B+ is a nice step up from the B. More USB ports, a better layout and generally more efficient board.

The gpio has been extended which makes some breakout boards incompatible. Many new boards exist but it's still a pain if you already own them.

The best thing for me is the SD card is now microSD. I had trouble with the B board with my cards breaking down the edge and losing contact. The microSD is a push spring type mechanism like you might have in your phone. Push-click/push-release.
